A Walk Across The Rooftops by Blue Nile and Primal Scream's Screamadelica feature this week in Davie Scott's Classic Scottish Albums themed Zone. Bobby Gillespie takes us back to the heady days of recording Screamadelica and how Thatcher and hedonism fuelled their songs, then we turn to the unmistakable sound of The Blue Nile and their Glasgow soundtrack A Walk Across The Rooftops.
